Return On Investment – it’s a key factor whenever you’re trying to convince the management team to allocate funds, whether it’s for equipment, staff or IT. It’s not enough to quote the old axiom – you have to spend money to make it – because that’s only true if what you’ve spent is providing value for the business and an increase in profits.
No business can afford to throw endless sums of money towards ensuring maximum, continuous performance. Immense pressures exist to drive cost down, across the board. It instead becomes a case of finding smart, effective solutions that have a positive return on the investment. So, how do you determine the value a battery management system can offer your business?
The more you spend, the better you want the ROI to be. A battery monitoring system is like anything else a business spends money on - you want to be sure you’re getting the most out of it. It’s with that in mind that we’ve developed a new calculator that will help you determine your ROI when you install PowerShield 8.
The calculator (Excel spreadsheet format) and accompanying guide will help you to determine the financial savings possible when you implement the PowerShield 8 battery monitoring system. It outlines the average financial costs of outages for data centers and how often UPS battery failure is the primary cause.
These tools are designed to help you understand what savings you could achieve over a one-year and a five-year horizon. You will also be able to calculate what your five-year return on investment (ROI) could be.
The calculator allows you to:
- Perform the calculations in 3 simple steps
- Understand the financial implications of failure
- Use detailed appendices to explain the calculator fields
The calculator has been designed to work for the US, UK and Europe.
PowerShield 8 moves you from simply monitoring your batteries to being informed of their current status, enabling action to be taken when required. The calculator and guide will help you to understand how you can squeeze every drop of value from investing in the PowerShield 8 battery monitoring solution. The investment you've made in batteries will go further, as well as providing greater protection from the financial and brand risks of data center outages caused by power failure.
At PowerShield, battery monitoring is all we do. If you have any queries about the ROI calculator, or PowerShield 8, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
